LEBANON, Ind. (AP) — Indiana's governor is directing that flags be lowered to half-staff in four counties in honor of slain Boone County sheriff's Deputy Jacob Pickett on the day of his funeral.
Gov. Eric Holcomb's office says his order calls for lowered flags from sunrise to sunset Friday, when Pickett's funeral will be held at a Brownsburg church. The order includes Boone, Hendricks and Marion counties, along with Tipton County, where Pickett previously was a sheriff's deputy.
Authorities say the 34-year-old Pickett was fatally shot Friday during a foot chase in Lebanon.
An initial court hearing is scheduled Wednesday afternoon for 21-year-old Anthony Baumgardt of Lebanon on a murder charge in Pickett's death.
